7 New Ideas for Covering your Rent Bill this Month


Taking online surveys is definitely a great way to supplement your income. But if that doesn't cut it and you're still looking for some other ideas to cover your rent or mortgage payment, we've done the searching and found 7 new ideas you probably haven't thought of yet to fill the gaps in your personal cash flow.


1. Personal Loans

Sure, credit cards come in handy when you have minor expenses you want to pay later. But the interest rates can be high, and if you need up front cash, most credit cards charge even higher cash advance fees.

Another option is to get a personal loan online through a service such as QuickLoanLink. Personal loans typically allow you to access a larger amount of cash up front (up to $35,000) and the interest rate is often lower than what credit cards charge.

2. Save up to $530 on Car Insurance

With most people, car insurance is a "set it an forget it" type of thing. But a quick check online could net you substantial savings on car insurance. Save the hassle of a phone call and use an online tool such as CarInsurance.net to check to see how much you could save by switching.

3. Go shopping for cash

Companies like Instacart and Postmates are in need of shoppers. Help out people in your community with their shopping and get paid for it! Sign up with both Instacart and Postmates to maximize your earnings.
